❯ Flygbussarna Airport Coach is the most common way of transportation among travelers. The service takes you from Stockholm Arlanda Airport to the city center in about 45 minutes. The buses operate every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day.
A ticket costs kr 99 and can be bought from ticket machines in the arrival hall and also on board (but with only credit/debit cards). The cheapest and easiest way is to get your tickets online.
❯ Swebus is an another company that offers coach services to Stockholm and nearby cities.
A ticket to Stockholm costs kr 119 and can be bought online. If your final destination is in Uppsala, take bus route 830, 832 or 835.

There are two railway options available at Arlanda Airport:
❯ Arlanda Express is the easiest and fastest way to get to Stockholm city center. The train platforms are located under each terminal and are easily reached by escalator.
The trains run directly to Stockholm from 5:00 AM to 1:00 AM, every 15 minutes. The journey takes only 20 minutes and a one-way ticket costs kr 280 (kr 580 for a return). Tickets can be bought online or at the ticket machines located next to the escalators.
❯ Pendeltåg (SL commuter trains) trains depart twice an hour between 5:00 AM and midnight. The trains depart only from the SkyCity zone (located between Terminal 4 and 5). You can take free transfer shuttles to get to the SkyCity zone from other terminals.
The journey to Stockholm Central Station takes 38 minutes, and a one-way ticket costs kr 120.
Even though the SL commuter train option is cheaper than the Arlanda Express, considering the transfer time and hassle, taking the Arlanda Express is a better option.
A taxi trip from Arlanda Airport to Stockholm city center takes about 30 minutes and costs around kr 600.
The taxi stands are located right outside of the terminal.
If you don't want to deal with the hassle of taxi companies/drivers or long bus queues, you can prebook a ride via Kiwitaxi, an online booking platform that offers reliable and cheap airport transfers worldwide. The English-speaking driver will wait for you at the airport even if your flight is delayed, holding a sign with your name on it.
